This was our first ever cruise. We travelled as two families from Norway.
Our cruise started in Barcelona, onto Naples, Rome, Florence, Villefranche and Marseille before going back to Barcelona. From entering the port at Barcelona, One hour later, we were in our room- not bad!
Our room was to house two adults and 3 children - 8,11 and 13 years old- fine. Food was okay, and drinks were expensive (7 dollars average) Service okay but annoying (american smile, good morning sirrrrr, have a nice... (read more)

never aagin, busy ship, too many people, fighting for sunbeds, problem with our seapasses for buying drinks onboard throughout the cruise and desk reception staff unhelpful, cabin staff very helpful though with cabin problems etc, good entertainment, not happy about being kicked of the ship early on departure day and having to spend a day in barcelona aiport until flight at 19.00, smoking allowed in some of the bars and smell of smoke throughout main area of ship, hence namename "the smokey...

This was our first RCCL cruise for 5 years and we did notice a deterioration in standards. The organised tours were expensive compared with doing your own thing e.g Rome by train 9 euros return including unimited use of the metro compared to 89 Euros for their Rome on your own bus trip. We were due to visit Toulon but berthed at La Seyne-Sur-Mer which using the RCCL's own words "is some considerable distance from Toulon" but we will take you there by bus for $10. We just had a pleasant walk... (read more)

I was excited to go on the Vogager of the Seas because I'd been on 2 other Royal Carribean cruises with great results. They cost more than Carnival, so I was expecting more. I was disappointed. We waited in line for 2 hours just to board the ship. We had booked mytime dining, thinking that would be convenient. Sadly, the service really suffered. 2 times we waited for 10-15 minutes after being seated, just to be acknowleded and waited on. When we visited the Johnny Rockets restaurant... (read more)

This was third cruise with Voyager. First Caribbean, second Mediterrean, both with friends, third mediterranean again, with 9 family members. Excellent from start to finish. So much so, family booking again this year. Brilliant ship, excellent facilities, wonderful staff. Loved the fact it catered so well for the kids as well as adults. Cannot find fault with any procedure from booking to leaving. Missed the fact we didn't have a balcony room third time around but, with so many of us... (read more)

the most wonderful honeymoon anyone could ask for, voyager of the seas was such a fantastic ship.
the staff are so welcoming so helpful they really do make your stay onboard the best anyone could ask for
the food is out of this world we ate mostly at windjammers which i think is the best choice onboard,
if this will be anyones first cruise you will be booking your second visit very soon as did we,
the port of call depends on your cruise, we only got off a few times as we found the ship has... (read more)

we have just come back from the voyager of the seas our first ever cruise. although we managed to enjoy it, we were treated dreadfully. freezing cold pools 100's if not 1000,s of complaints and they still lied about the pools being warm. my wife did not use the pool once and at least 2 people i meet had nose bleeds from the icy cold pools with no heating!
airborne chemicals with clearly marked toxic symbols were being used near to where my kids were playing which made us feel ill, when we... (read more)

The Royal Caribbean, Voyager of the Seas is excellent, very clean and well decorated. The staff all deserve a medal for the work they put in. Our staeroom attendant and waiters were the best, top class. (read more)

I've been on various cruise ships (celebrity, NCL, Disney, Crystal) - and not one of them has kept us as entertained as Royal Caribbean's Voyager class ships. I've been on 4 RCCL ships total (so far!) and 3/4 were Voyager Class.
The food is average, not a ship to go on for gourmet food, it is what it is, its worth it. Portofino, Chops Grille make a perfect option if you dont want to dine in the Main Dining Rooms. The Windjammer is good, themed nights each day and the food is quite... (read more)

We booked private tours (Romeinlimo) for most of the ports except for Villafranche and Palermo. Villafranche was easy to visit on our own but in Palermo we ended up hiring a taxi as the local area near the port was not appealing. One note, we would not purchase the wine package next time. A more extensive list is available without the package. Overall we enjoyed cruising and will travel this way again. (read more)

Terrific New Year's Cruise; Cruise Director was the best; shows were well done, the food in the dining room was very well prepared; and the waiters were attentive and friendly.
The activities on board were varied and interesting. We've taken many cruises and this one was the best. (read more)

Considering the size of the Voyager of the Seas ship, this ship it was the best we have been on for service, facilities, security. Photographer tried really hard to get good pictures even if you weren't buying. Tremendous beds, the best sleep ever.
Have been with Cunard (QE2 never again), Princess (very good), Thomson (underrated), Airtours (average), P&O (good but a bit staid), and Royal Caribbean (Yes Yes Yes.) This was May 24th - 31st. Mediterranean Cruise. (read more)

This was our 5th cruise and the 1st with Royal Caribbean.
It started well with a flight from Newcastle to London Heathrow and then on to Miami.
Immigration at the airport was quick but we had to wait for more than one hour for a bus to take us to the Radison hotel for our nights stay.
Embarcation was long and tiring.
First impression of the ship was WOW!!!!.
It took until we had sailed away from Miami before the final delivery of our cases. The cabin was very good and the attendant was very... (read more)

The Royal Caribbean, Voyager of the Seas ports stopped at islands that were damaged (some extensively) by recent hurricanes but have done substancial rebuilding such as Georgetown and Cozumel. Labadee was a great beach day and we even bought a nice painting. There was even local entertainment on the island with dancing music and fire eating. There are also lots of water activities other than the beach that you can enjoy at a cost!! Ocho Rios was unfortunately a rain day but we still were... (read more)

Royal Caribbean, Voyager of the Seas - This was a great cruise experience.
We'll be going on another one this year and, despite it being 75-$100 more pp. for the week (compared to Carnival), it's well worth it :). (read more)
